Manchester Folk Festival 2021/ Jack Rutter

Please note this event takes place at Anthony Burgess Foundation, 3 Cambridge St, Manchester, M1 5BY

Jack Rutter is an outstanding young folk singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from West Yorkshire.

Jack has a well-earned reputation for his solo work, as well as being highly sought after as a musical collaborator (Seth Lakeman, Sam Sweeney, The Young ‘Uns and Jackie Oates) and having played in the celebrated instrumental trio Moore Moss Rutter.

Jack’s latest solo album Gold of Scar & Shale features unearthed gems from the folk canon with his masterful playing and arrangements on guitar, bouzouki, duet concertina and harmonium providing the perfect accompaniment for his soaring vocals.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 21-23 October 2021, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
